Social Work

Watch social work graduate Alex's story

Social work is an area where you can help others and improve their lives.

It involves understanding people and the systems that surround them, and how you can influence those systems to achieve positive outcomes.

Life is full and there is always so much going on that it is hard to keep study as a priority, which is what it needs to be if you want to do well. But the prospect of being a successful social worker outweighs the struggle by far.
